26 April

Paljon Onnea Laura!

These cute paw prints were in the mudbank below our campsite on Sand River

I'm not entirely cured of my fear of sliding cars, especially coupled with water. Most of the crossings I was able to survive sitting down, closing my eyes and holding onto something. But for this one I had to get out. It's too unnerving to see yourself go down at a near 75 degree angle in mud straight into water. So I got out and took pictures instead :) They still laugh at me..

These cute mongoose (or is it mongeese :D ) were at the filling station of Serena Lodge. I followed them around. They would peek around sandpiles and bushes, always so curious.

This guy was perturbed. We bullied him off the road and he trotted off trumpeting and looking back at us accusingly.

Gotta love the roads.. We came through this and almost made it. There was one little dip that our car didn't quite make and left us spinning mud. The Hartzell's car couldn't get good enough grip to pull us ( he almost ended up in the ditch himself) but fortunately another vehicle came by and we were able to persuade them to help us. We were happy to be out of there.
